Mode Of Transportation — Air Freight
Air freight is generally transported by passenger and cargo aircraft or freighter, in the air less subject to natural geographical constraints, the route is generally the shortest distance between the two points, is the point-to-point direct, the speed is about 600KM ~ 800KM per hour, compared to sea and rail transport has the advantage of time.
This feature of air freight is adapted to the transport needs of some special items, such as seafood, meat products, animals, and plants. Air freight is expensive but fast. It can be to the city airport, to the bulk of the pallet, the aircraft space is relatively limited, the width and height of the goods have a strict limit, air freight has more door-to-door service, in time and security, has a greater guarantee.
Mode Of Transportation — Sea Freight
Sea transport in natural waterways and port facilities is generally government construction, have lower operating costs, not subject to the restrictions of roads, tracks, routes, and transport volume (to 20-foot cabinets as a standard fifth-generation container ship can carry more than 5,000 TEU), low freight costs. Sea freight is cheap but slow, only to the coast and some inland cities, mainly container transport.
Compared to air and rail transport, sea transport is not too flexible due to the limitations of shipping lanes and ports, because of the large size of the ships and the high resistance to water flow, the speed will be very low, and the timeliness of freight transport is poor.
Mode Of Transportation — Railway Freight
Railway transport is characterized by high safety, high transport speed, long transport distance, high capacity, low cost, low pollution, and high potential, and is not affected by weather conditions. In actual operation, the speed of the railway is generally 80KM~150KM per hour, and each train can transport about 2~3,000 tons, and it can run according to the plan. Railway freight is generally time-efficient and limited and is also container-based.
Rail transport is relatively short compared to air transport and sea transport because the transport distance is relatively short and can only pass in places where there are railway tracks, so the freight costs are higher than sea transport. The freight rates are higher than those of sea freight. The long transit time for freight trains, the lack of door-to-door service, the fixed number of trains, and the inability to stop anywhere.
